- Decryptionary went viral in the Litecoin subreddit.

There are only 2 reasons why cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology aren’t in widespread use right now:
- The technology is not user-friendly—do you remember the slow Internet of the 90s? When we got DSL, the Internet boomed!
- The technology and words are not understood—very few people understand what “blockchain” is, who Satoshi is and how he relates to Bitcoin let alone the other hundreds of words, phrases, and abbreviations.
The purpose of Decryptionary.com is to make Bitcoin and blockchain terms simple, knowable so anyone can understand it.
